Mukluk is Salsa's most versatile fat bike, designed and engineered to excel in the wide variety of conditions fat bikers face. Whether you’re methodically attempting a first route in the Northwest Territories or chasing sunlight in Moab, Mukluk can do it all. 197mm rear spacing accommodates up to 5-inch tires, and a 100mm threaded bottom bracket allows a wide range of crank (q-factor) choices. Salsa's new Version 2.0 Alternator dropouts allow for some of the shortest chainstay lengths available, too, giving you quick and nimble or long and stable in one versatile frame. This carbon Mukluk boasts SRAM's impressive 12-speed GX Eagle drivetrain for plenty of gearing, and Guide R brakes effortlessly wrangle HED Big Deal Aluminum rims that are wrapped in Maxxis Minion FBR 26 x 4.8-inch meats. Whether you go singlespeed or geared, rigid or suspended out front, or make use of the stealthy and integrated Alternator Rack/Rack-Lock systems for added carrying capacity via traditional racks & panniers, you can dream boldly knowing Mukluk won’t back down.
A good adventure partner is reliable, covers ground at your pace, helps shoulder the load, and gives you the confidence to keep going when the trail looks tough (or disappears entirely). Mukluk checks all the boxes with Alternator dropouts, a lightweight aluminum frame, plenty of gear mounts, and stable geometry. We'll let you two start planning. 6066-T6 Aluminum Frame Top-shelf, double and triple-butted, heat-treated 6066-T6 aluminum tubing is used throughout the frame. This 6000-series aluminum has better strength and fatigue characteristics than 6061 and 7000-series aluminum, allowing for a stronger and lighter overall frame. Additionally, the tubing is strategically shaped and formed for additional stiffness and strength optimization in key stress areas. Mukluk Geometry Mukluk's geometry works extremely well in all conditions and use cases, whether it be riding groomed singletrack at your local trail, exploring a beach coastline, or embarking across the wild frozen expanses of Alaska. At its core, we use the shortest chainstay possible with a headtube angle and fork offset that place the rider's center of gravity further over the rear wheel. This location and combination of front and rear center is key to getting a fat bike that is stable, steers well in loose conditions, and still feels nimble and agile despite the massive wheels and tires. A low bottom bracket is also key to keep the rider's center of gravity low and to make dabbing, dismounting, and remounting easier. 26 x 4.6" Wheel & Tire Size Mukluk rolls on 26 x 4.6" tires on 80mm rims. This huge tire delivers massive traction, stability, and optimum flotation on soft surfaces such as ungroomed snow or loose sand. Bearpaw Carbon Fork This full-carbon fork features a 150 x 15mm thru-axle that boosts stiffness and improves steering precision. The fork also features our Three-Pack mounts for accessorizing with Anything Cages or water bottle cages.
